SHOP LOCAL + BUY LOCAL
Support KC + VIVE Culture
From the coffee we enjoy on Sunday mornings to our favorite barbershop like buffalo mane - our local spots are everything that makes our city feel like a home. So, VIVE Culture is championing small businesses throughout the city during this pandemic who are deeply effected in these unprecedented times.
We are not just finding ways to get meals to kids who are in need, but we also want to find creative ways to put money in the pockets of our great Kansas Citians who serve and love our community every single day.
Now is the time for Kansas Citians to rally together during this time, from a distance, of course, to support the people and places that make our city feel like home.
Share with us your spots, support small businesses, and show a lot of love to our neighborhoods across the KC Metro at #SupportKC.
Here’s how it works:
Find your neighborhood
Your zip code. Your street. Your hood. Find the many small businesses you love.
2. Support, support, SUPPORT
Order curbside pick-up, order products directly from their website, or buy a gift card to use for a future date.
3. Share the love
The more people who care for those in our own city the better we’ll be when we get through this. I know we will get through this together.
Spread the word and share this with your people on social media.
We are in this together.
Eph. 2:19-22 You’re no longer wandering exiles. This kingdom of faith is now your home country. You’re no longer strangers or outsiders. You belong here, with as much right to the name Christian as anyone. God is building a home. He’s using us all—irrespective of how we got here—in what he is building. He used the apostles and prophets for the foundation. Now he’s using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all the parts together.
Our vision is to continue partnering with great organizations and exposing our church community to the privilege and responsibility of serving throughout the KC Metro and around the world. We will change the world one brick at a time.
663 million people in the world live without clean water.
That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be used to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.
But access to clean water means education, income, and health - especially for women and kids.
We built a water well for a village in Secunderabad, India that will provide water for the next 30 years.
This is how we will change the world...one brick at a time.
VIVE is working to create sustainable economic growth at Bright Hope Orphanage in Lumino, Uganda.
This year we are adopting 250 orphans in Uganda who are in a safe, and healthy home and providing all their food, healthcare, and educational needs.
Ephesians 2:20-21 - "Now he's using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all parts together."

The heart of our church isn’t confined to the walls of our church. We take what Jesus says in Matthew 28:19 pretty seriously, and believe a church that never stops going is a church that never stops growing. You don’t have to hang around very long to learn that to us, being the church Beyond Our Walls is a really big deal. We hope you agree and that you’ll jump in and be a part.
We helped plant 65 churches in the U.S. last year and here are some other organizations we invest in monthly.
